There's a new social networking and photo/video sharing web site to add to your arsenal, and it's called Staree. Today is the official launch of the Staree web site, which is focused on making the process of sharing status updates, photos and videos more easy and fun for users around the web. In an interesting twist, Staree is also making the process more profitable too, as they are paying users to upload and stay active on their web site.
I've already created my own profile page on Staree and I'm quite excited for what the future holds for Staree. Not only are they catering to the average users on the internet, but they are also getting a ton of celebrities to jump onto their network as well.
Let's take a deeper look at Staree and how you can get setup with your own profile page and start sharing new content with your friends, family and social network followers. The quotes below each section are provided by Staree's recent press release.
What is Staree?
In my own words, I would explain Staree as being a mixture of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Entertainment and Blogging… but even with that explanation it's actually much more. In short, it's a fun an exciting new way to upload and share photos and videos online, while also getting paid in the process. Using the Staree web site or their mobile app, you can take pictures from anywhere, then send them to your Staree page, which also features all of your other social network links from Twitter and Facebook. You will also be setup with your own profile page which will allow others to contact you can grow your social presence online.
Staree allows users to post photos and videos from their mobile device or desktop, and share them with friends through Facebook and Twitter. Users make money from display advertising targeted to their content and product placement in photos and videos.

Right now Staree is open to everyone. Before today they were in a huge beta launch, which is when I was able to get in and setup my page. There is an approval process going on at their web site right now, but anyone can apply. The better social rankings and following you have, the more likely you are to get accepted. Among the many average people who are using Staree, there is also a massive celebrity following in the works as well. It will be interesting to see how many celebrities start using Staree to connect their social followers together, while also sharing video and photo content.
